“Most of our New York State Office of People with Developmental Disabilities facilities have from four to 12 individuals living in a home setting. There’s staff is on-call 24 hours a day. If there are behavior issue or other distractions while staff is trying to pass meds, it can be confusing. The organization of packaging is a big help in supporting the staff in these cases. And the staff has a great comfort level from the knowledge that a pharmacist or skilled nurse has reviewed the packaging. They know it’s right and it gives them more security that it’s not just their eyes on the medications.” CT
